My daughter called me to tell me that a high school boyfriend who had remained a friend, died suddenly at the age of forty-five. That same day, my granddaughter’s friend was killed in an automobile accident on the way back from basketball practice. Also on that same day two police officers, best friends of her uncle, were shot and killed in the line of duty. All of this loss hit my daughter and her friends suddenly. What do you do? Where do you turn? How do you live with this kind of tragedy?

Life comes to us in a series of ups and downs. Life may seem good, bad, terrible, or tragic. In Science of Mind, we learn how to handle the ups and downs of life through classes, reading, and meditation. A wonderful peace comes from building our awareness of the presence of the indwelling God – always with us, wherever we are. We learn that all is God and that wherever God is, there is good. We learn to make a choice – we can choose to know that God’s Divine Plan is taking place. We learn that what looks like tragedy to us is a thread in the tapestry of life. There are blessings that we can’t foresee, but they are there nevertheless.

Let’s choose to have faith in God’s Divine plan for all of us. Let’s choose to take the time to go within and feel that deep peace of Spirit. It’s always there for us, for we are never alone. What a blessing it is to know that!

AFFIRM: Today I choose to see my life in the context of God’s Divine Plan. I choose to take the time to live more consciously in the Presence. I allow life to proceed in the perfect way in God’s perfect timing.

Where’s the Pony?

The Choice is Yours


Spring Always Follows Winter


Recently a number of things happened in my life that I felt were out of congruence with my spiritual way of living. My husband had an emergency appendectomy, and the bills were beginning to pile up. Many things were out of kilter and I couldn’t figure out why.   

Then I remembered the story about a little boy who was expecting to receive his birthday present. He was led to a barn, but when he opened the door there was nothing but manure on the floor. The little boy yelled with excitement. He dashed into the barn and began digging through the manure. When he was asked what he was so happy about, he answered “With all this manure there has to be a pony in here someplace!” He knew there was good in store for him.  

Friends and family supported us with their prayers. My husband recovered more quickly than expected; our finances are coming into alignment with our consciousness of abundance, and we see our life together as a blessing.  

Even when things seem to go wrong in life there is a meaning and a purpose behind the circumstances. Ask yourself, “Where’s the pony in this situation?” How do you choose to look at life? Spring always follows winter. Expect a blessing and it will come.  

Today I look for the blessing in my experience. I know that God means everything for good.
